Fern and Andrew’s Wedding Details
Tell us how you met…
“We met 14 years ago at our local theatre, Andrew was a technician and Fern was part of a drama group, we never kept in touch but flash forward four years from our first meeting and we bumped into each other started chatting and 10 years later he we are married with a cat..”
What was your overall plan for the wedding? What did you want for the day?
“We wanted a really relaxed atmosphere, the kind you find at an impromptu bbq. Obviously we wanted everyone to have fun and tried not to keep the day too structured as.”
Any funny stories from the wedding?
“Between the groom fist pumping the air as we were announced bride and groom to the best man who had to use shoe laces to keep his shirt sleeves up due to the length the whole day was full of fun.“
How did you choose your photographer?
“We met Chocolate Chip at a wedding fair in Newcastle metro arena. I think it’s hard to miss a 6ft odd bearded man and a lady with bright blue hair. We were intrigued by their appearance and started chatting to them while looking through their books. They had the style which we found interesting as they choose to take an alternative approach to wedding photography and had amazing photos caught when people are off guard.”
How did you choose your venue? Would you recommend the venue to future couples?
“We would 100% recommend Healey Barn to future couples. The brides mother has already started and someone has already booked up with the venue for 2017. Fern found the venue by pure chance as all she had done is Google “barn weddings north east”, after viewing photos online she fell in love with the relaxed style they portrayed”
Advice for other brides and grooms?
“Live in the moment. Don’t sweat the small stuff, something will go wrong but just accept it and surround yourselves with people you have faith in as it will all come together in the end.”
The photographs you see above were taken on two Canon 5D mk iii cameras using a variety of different lenses.
The couple booked the Premium Photographer Package which gave them one photographer for the whole day.
